Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy

nights.jpgI’d read this before so was delighted when my friend chose it for our book club selection this month. This story is set in a charming charming village in Greece and brings together five characters from different countries and different backgrounds through a tragedy-they witness a pleasure boat catching on fire. These five spend that tragic day together at a restaurant atop a hill and it forms a bond between them. Like in Binchy’s other stories thereare characters with sad backstories and the characters all have very real flaws.

I’d love to write more, but I finished this a week ago and what else can I say? It’s a captivating story, she weaves the characters’ stories together well, Greece must be absolutely beautiful and one of the main characters is somewhat unlikable.
